Up, Up and AWAY!! – Great Romantic Birthday Ideas

My best friend had a birthday surprise last weekend that included a ride in a hot-air balloon! Her date didn’t even tell her where they were going, but just whisked her away (to a height of around 7500 feet she tells me).

I know some guys have difficulties coming up with a great idea for a special occasion. Her date, obviously, isn’t one of those…

so I thought I’d share the idea for anyone looking for a way to give the best gift in the world — a great memory of a wonderful day!

How cool!

(Course it would have been cooler if I could have managed to get permission to post their close-up smiling shots and their names… but alas, some people are shy.)
